Ooh, the current state looks worse than when I looked previously. I
wasn't copied on commit 96c804a6ae8c ("mm/memory-failure.c: don't
access uninitialized memmaps in memory_failure()"). That commit seems
to ensure the pmem errors in memory sections that overlap with
System-RAM are not handled. So that change looks broken to me.
Previously get_devpagemap() was sufficient protection.

How exactly? The soft_offline_page() callers seem to already account
for System-RAM vs devmem.

Ok, but as the first example shows in the absence of a problem report
these pre-emptive changes might make things worse so I don't think
it's as simple as go instrument all the pfn_to_online_page() users.
